The Steam Deck is one of the most exciting handhelds to be created due in part to its ability to play – in theory – your full Steam Library. Unfortunately, not every game will work, and the first list of unsupported games has been revealed – and it includes Persona 4 Golden.
As reported by SteamDB, the first batch of Steam Deck games have been revealed, with 38 verified titles, 24 playable and 5 unsupported. For the uninitiated, the Steam Deck will collate all Steam games into one of these three categories, with verified games having been tested to work perfectly on a Steam Deck. A ‘playable’ game, meanwhile, may need some tweaking, such as manually selecting a controller configuration, or using the Deck’s touch screen or a virtual keyboard to navigate a menu. Unsupported games are just that – unsupported.
According to SteamDB, the list of verified games are: Portal 2; The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth; Celeste; Hollow Knight; Dishonored; Risk of Rain 2; Cuphead; Castle Crashers; Psychonauts 2; Webbed; Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice – GOTY Edition; Noita; DARK SOULS III; Gunfire Reborn; Mark of the Ninja: Remastered; Tetris Effect: Connected; Total War: WARHAMMER II; Death's Door; Manifold Garden; Into the Breach; DEATH STRANDING; The Messenger; APE OUT; Record of Lodoss War-Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth-; Mad Max; FINAL FANTASY; Guacamelee! 2; Rogue Legacy 2; Super Mega Baseball 3; DARK SOULS II: Scholar of the First Sin; Circuit Superstars; SCARLET NEXUS; Remnant: From the Ashes; Sable; Aliens: Fireteam Elite; HOT WHEELS UNLEASHED; Tunche and RAD.
Playable games include the likes of: Factorio; The Witcher 3: wild Hunt; Slay the Spire; Cookie Clicker; Valheim; Rise of the Tomb Raider; NieR: Automata; and BRAVELY DEFAULY II – to name a few. The list of unsupported games meanwhile are: Persona 4 Golden; Job Simulator (VR); theBlu (VR); Arizona Sunshine (VR) and Budget Cuts (VR).
As can be seen, the majority of the unsupported games are VR titles – which was already previously confirmed to not work with the Steam Deck. It is somewhat surprising to see Persona 4 Golden on the list of unsupported titles. The game was originally released on the PlayStation Vita, and so would be perfect for the Steam Deck. Hopefully the list of unsupported titles will shrink over time.
